When do yellow cards reset at the World Cup?

Unlike in other years, players will not miss the World Cup final if they have been booked previously.

However, if a player were to pick up a red card, they would still be suspended.

Up until the quarter final, players who receive a yellow card in two different games, will then miss their next fixture.

A player’s record after the quarter final will then be reset, meaning only a red card could prevent them from missing the final.
